Yes, I am sorry. That is an 1.5-only constructor. However, instead of
applying your patch, I changed the Exception to be an RuntimeException,
which has a (String, Throwable) - constructor ;-)  (and it does not really
metter - the error is practically anytime a coding problem, so
RuntimeException is fine).

The font is shipped with the code, look at it in lib/data/. I don't know
why it does not load for you.. :-?

I applied the patches here and they will go into svn with my next upload
(which will be approximatly sunday evening).
